Surf Life Saving NSW is delighted to announce that ClubsNSW has extended its partnership with the volunteer organisation for a further three years under the community-focussed Your local club tag.

Representatives from ClubsNSW joined SLSNSW CEO Steven Pearce at the announcement on Sydney’s Northern Beaches earlier this week.   

Since 2013, ClubsNSW have been strong supporters of the organisation providing valuable support as naming rights partner of the prestigious NSW Surf Life Saving Championships.

They have also actively supported a number of community initiatives including the annual Beach to Bush program; the largest and most innovative surf safety education program in Australia that has reached more than 270,000 primary school students since it began in 1994.

“Surf Life Saving NSW is a really special organisation and when you think about it there really is nothing like the work that they do anywhere else in the world,” said Trent Sutton – Marketing, Partnership & Event Manager for ClubsNSW.

“For the last five years ClubsNSW has been building a very strategic relationship with Surf Life Saving NSW, and we’re pleased to announce an increased investment through the YourLocalClub partnership that will help support this wonderful organisation for the next three years,” he said.

Under the extended agreement, the funds will be used to provide support across a number of different portfolios including surf sports, community education, lifesaving, and most importantly, frontline services.

SLSNSW CEO Steven Pearce hailed the agreement as an important milestone for the movement.

“I would like to thank ClubsNSW for their ongoing support of Surf Life Saving. This decision to extend their partnership through to 2020 is a show of confidence in the membership.

“They recognise the value that we add to the community and support like this allows us to continue to do our work to the highest possible standards that the wider community expects and deserves,” Mr Pearce said.

Also on hand at North Steyne Surf Club on Monday were Manly Sea Eagles NRL players Daly Cherry-Evans and Darcy Lussick, who were there to reinforce important beach safety messaging ahead of summer.  With temperatures set to soar and the festive season now here, Cherry-Evans and Lussick’s reminders was for all beach goers to swim between the flags, never swim under the influence of drugs or alcohol and signal for assistance from a lifesaver if you find yourself in trouble in the water.
